When you call a list operation (for example
list_instances()) will retrieve a page of results. In order
to retrieve more data, you have to continue to make calls to the list operation, passing in the value of the most recent response’s
as a parameter to the next list operation call.
As a convenience over manually writing pagination code, you can make use of the functions in the
pagination module to:
- Eagerly load all possible results from a list call
- Eagerly load all results from a list call up to a given limit
- Lazily load results (either all results, or up to a given limit) from a list call via a generator. These generators can yield either values/models or the raw response from calling the list operation
For an example on how to use these functions, please check GitHub.
